Cursed (2005)



Critic Consensus: A predictable plot and cheesy special effects make Cursed a less-than-scary experience.

Movie Info

The team behind the Scream trilogy, director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, present another entry in the teen-horror genre with Cursed. Starring Christina Ricci and Jesse Eisenberg, the film tells the story of two siblings who have to battle a werewolf that has been wreaking havoc on their neighbors, just as they learn that they might be marked with "the sign of the beast," and may become werewolves themselves. Along with Shannon Elizabeth and Judy Greer, Cursed also co-stars Dawson Creek alumnus Joshua Jackson, as well as R&B star Mya. -- (C) Rovimore

What can you say about a horror film when its spookiest cast member plays the innocent victim?

Full Review… | October 21, 2008

It really never deserved to be more than a quickie TV-movie on the WB, where it would've aired around Halloween and then faded into oblivion.

A procession of silly startlements: a sudden loud sound here, a mysterious hand creeping in there. This isn't scary, it's irritating. And then it's tiresome.

Audience Reviews for Cursed


Bringing nothing new to the werewolf film that hasn't been done before, i'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I really loved seeing Christina Ricci and Jesse Eisenberg together. They are a terrific acting pair and they are among the most positive aspects of the film. There's also a lot of good jokes and a few scary moments. Although not a classic werewolf film like Lon Chaney Jr's The Wolf Man that helped inspire it, Cursed is the best cheesy movie i've ever seen.

Not the most exciting horror movie. Pretty dull in the first half, seriously considered switching it off, but decided to stick with it. Can't honestly say I am glad that I did, but it did pick up.
The cast is decent, especially Christina Ricci and Judy Greer, (she was actually pretty funny when she got going). I think this was meant to be funny more than scary, though quite honestly, it falls flat in both directions.
